LEBANON, Tenn. (WZTV) — Police say an undocumented immigrant befriended a Tennessee family, snuck into their home and raped a 6-year-old girl.
Edwin Alfredo Velasquez-Curuchiche, 42, was charged with two counts of rape of a child from incidents stemming from Nov. 29.
Lebanon Police said the suspect, an undocumented immigrant, befriended a local family and used fraud to obtain a key to the victim’s home. The family didn't know Velasquez-Curuchiche had made a key. On two occasions, Velasquez-Curuchiche snuck into the home after the family was sleeping and raped a 6-year-old girl who lived in the home.
The suspect was discovered on his second entry and the family notified police.
